    I am pleased to announce the republication of Wrestling, Part Two by Billy Sandow and Ed "Strangler" Lewis. This is Vol. 7 of an 8 volume set covering Physical Culture and Catch as Catch Can Wrestling.

    As always, the PDF download is free:
    Wrestling, Part two by Billy Sandow and Ed "Strangler" Lewis

    Blurb:
    On a special note, I am actively looking for the rest of this set to republish. If you have the set, or at least Volumes 6 and 8 (the wrestling instruction) and would be interested in allowing me to republish using your originals, please contact me here or at my personal email: [email protected] Original prints only, please, not the Paladin reprint.

    Peace favor your sword,
    Kirk

    Well, that's cool. I recently read "the last wrestlers". In the book the author speaks of learning from some early cacc style documents, I wonder if these are them.

    CaCC was popular in the early part of the 20th Century. The introduction of JiuJitus and Judo brought out a sense of nationalistic pride and the sport experienced a revival. This included many challenge matches between noted JJ practitioners (such as Tani & Uyenishi) and CaCC wrestlers.

    There were a good number of CaCC manuals produced during this time. I have 6 other CaCC specific manuals on the "storefront" available for free download, 7 if you include Gallagher's, 8 if you include the CaCC chapter in "Dick's Art of Wrestling."

    This stuff is really great. Now I'm in the mood for a rare steak to eat, a warm ale to drink, and an icy cold river to swim in.

    Bear in mind that some period Physical Culture & boxing/wrestling trainers actually recommended weak tea most of the time and only once in a while a Stout or the like.
